Diploma Project Upcycling Aesthetically

Uma Glass Works Pvt. Ltd.

The project aimed to develop a new range of glass vases and lamps with the concept of upcycling to encourage reuse of materials and reduce wastage and environmental pollution. Adopting material fusing while experimenting and combining different materials that blend beautifully with glass and enhance its aesthetic appeal became the primary scope for the product. For the same, experimentation was carried out how materials like cement, plaster of paris, old wood, bicycle chains, metal nuts from the scrap market played with glass in terms of aesthetics and functionality.
